Irakli Kobakhidze, Chairman of the Georgian Dream, stated that Ukraine’s membership in the EU would take many years because there is a specific legal document according to which no country can become a member of the EU until all its obligations are met.
“This applies to Georgia, Moldova, all countries equally. As for Georgia, we will submit such a document to the EU in 2024. By 2024, we will have a serious part of the obligations fulfilled, after which it will be a rational basis for our application. We have had preliminary consultations with EU officials. They explain that the offer of EU membership is relevant to Ukraine, which is at war, but not relevant to Moldova and Georgia,” Kobakhidze said.
